    • If you don't know how to format your text:
      • start each line without spaces
      • separate paragraphs with a blank line
    • You can produce better hypertext by using WikiWords? (concatenated capitalized words):
      • WikiWords? will be shown as hyperlinks
      • WikiWords? are especially useful if they are meaningful and used uniformly across the whole site
      • The 'WikiWord?' is WikiWord? hyperlink by itself. Follow it to learn more :)
    • For external site links, you can type URLs directly into the text - =http://etcete.ra/...= - it'll clear to anyone where they're headed on click.
    • If a discussion is going on:
      • separate each follow-up with a space
      • add your WikiName? and the date at the end
      • OR, by all means, insert your comment where it seems to fit best:
        • you may want to inset it with a bullet and/or set it in italics so it's clear (always sign and date)
        • if a sub-topic develops, separate it with a horizontal rule at beginning and end
    • To start a new discussion:
      • start with a brief, factual introduction, followed by double horizontal rules
      • let the discussion begin
    • When a discussion is complete, boil down the key points:
      • reduce the noise
      • move offtopic facts to appropriate pages
      • if you merge or delete comments, group credit =Contributors:= at the end of the page
    • Please, avoid typing dates in national formats. Please use either an standard date format like 01 Sep 2001 or ISO (2001-09-01 or 2001-Sep-01).
    • Please, avoid words like 'next version' or 'year ago' whenever possible, even if it seems to you that the reader will know the context. 'Absolute' references are much better than 'relative'.
